Holy Cross Sixth Form College

From School to College

Leaving school and heading to Holy Cross is the first step to a new future. This is a new and exciting time for you as you prepare to make the transition from school to sixth form college. In college you will meet new students, experience a new environment, new teachers and new courses but you will also benefit from greater independence, learning new things and making new friends.

Staff and students will make you feel welcome and help you to settle in quickly so that you will soon feel very much at home here. You will also be in a more adult environment which gives you more freedom, self-confidence and autonomy.

Preparing you for your future

This greater independence will equip you for university and your future career. You will develop independent learning skills and take greater responsibility for your own progression.

You will also develop the study skills necessary for university or the self-motivation required for your working life.

To support you in achieving your full potential we will have very high expectations of you in respect to your attendance, punctuality and completing work on time. We know from experience that this makes a telling contribution to your overall success.

All our staff have a role in caring for and supporting you - we want you to do well, and will listen to your concerns, as well as your ideas, opinions and suggestions.
